|Chennai Super kings|
Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will aim to bounce back to winning ways when they face Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in a return fixture at the Eden Gardens in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 on Sunday.
The match, however, is more important for the hosts, who after making a good start in the tournament have slipped a bit after losing their last two matches. KKR captain Dinesh Karthik will be keen to effect a turnaround.
The worrying news from the KKR camp is that they have a few players down with injury and illness. An indisposed Chris Lyn missed Friday’s match against Delhi Capitals. So did Sunil Narine with a sore hamstring.
Andre Russell, who is in roaring form with the bat, was seen struggling with his fitness while batting on Friday. Although skipper Karthik too is reportedly down with flu.
KKR dropped in-form Chris Lynn to bring Joe Denly who was out on golden duck against Delhi, Carlos Brathwaite, in place of Sunil Narine, too struggled to put runs in the last overs and was meek with the ball. Lockie Ferguson also was not at his best.
CSK, on the other hand, have hardly missed the injured Dwayne Bravo’s versatility. His replacement Mitchell Santner showed displayed nerves of steel by hitting a last-ball six to seal victory against Rajasthan Royals in their last match.
Chennai Super Kings defeated Rajasthan Royals at Sawai Mansingh Stadium on Thursday and with that, they also brought up their hat-trick victory. Meanwhile, it was confirmed that Harbhajan Singh will not be part of CSK playing 11 against KKR as he is suffering from a stiff neck.
Chennai clearly have visible weak spots but Dhoni still manages to get away with victory as he knows how to get the best out of his players. Kolkata have shown signs of weakness in their last two matches and their reliance on just Russell is evident but the all-rounder looked tired in their match against Delhi and Karthik will have to find ease his burden.
MS Dhoni, however, courted controversy after he walked out of the dugout towards the umpire who had initially given a no-ball off Rajasthan Royals’ Ben Stokes’ delivery in the penultimate over. The action cost Dhoni 50% of his match fee, the CSK skipper would look to go past the incident.
